Jack Marriott made it three goals in two games for Skrill Premier side Woking, as he picked up a brace in Saturday’s 3-2 home victory against bottom team Hyde.

The Cards were two-goals down and heading for defeat until Marriott grabbed his first five minutes before half-time.

Strike partner Scott Rendell levelled the scores just after the break and Marriott capped off a stunning comeback with the winner 16 minutes from time.

As a result, the Beverley-born hitman left the field once again clutching the Man of the Match award, following his spectacular start last Tuesday when he scored and made a goal in the 3-0 victory over Dartford.

Elliott Hewitt made a winning start to life as a Gillingham loanee as he helped his new team to a 2-1 win at Sheffield United in League One, on Saturday.

The 19-year-old, who started the season as Mick McCarthy’s first-choice right-back at Portman Road, was booked in the Gills’ victory over their fellow strugglers at Bramall Lane.

Elsewhere, David October was also in action as Histon, for whom he signed on a 40-day loan last month, were defeated 3-0 in the FA Trophy Third Qualifying Round at Guiseley.
